CLT Language Training provides English language tuition services. English is taught through a variety of classroom, visiting programme and host family stay experiences. It shows people how to expand their language skills and learn English in one of the most culturally rich countries in Europe.
I enrolled on the LEAD Wales programme because I needed more know-how with regard to effectively managing the business and leading staff. I wanted to understand my own strengths and weaknesses. In addition to this, I thought it would be good to meet other businesspeople top understand the way they do business (outside my industry). Finally, it offered me the opportunity to network.
For me and my business interests, the most important aspect of the programme was the shadowing and business-to-business exchange of ideas and know-how from the other professionals - in other words, learning from each other.
Thanks to LEAD Wales, I have managed to create a good business image and brand for my company. I moved to new premises, in a better location and it was furnished to a high standard. This was a suggestion from the exchange and shadow programme.
